soul searching about the future of the party. as romney said good-bye to campaign staff at his boston headquarters yesterday, republican recriminations were already in full swing. one member of the campaign's finance committee told "the washington post," "everybody feels like they were a bunch of well meaning folks who were to use a phrase that governor romney coined to describe his opponent -- way in over their heads." plenty more republicans were more than willing to go on the record. >> the romney campaign did nothing -- zero -- nothing -- in the last few days to jump-start the governor. >> after that first debate, i don't know where that mitt romney went. i mean in the summertime, he was raising a lot of money and he was on lake winnipesaukee, he was having fun on the jet ski. >> when conservative commentator ann coulter defended romney, ingraham incredulously disagreed. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it is over. >> i'm sorry, this is going to sound cruel, but some of the times i didn't fee

are serious about it. he zoo tais talking to everybod. he is saying i'm going to talk to everybody. one other thing that i want to say, i was rereading the spees. president obama proposed this idea that then romney also proposed. so this idea has been out there for a while. but if we can agree on that flt that is the most important thing. number one the majority of the american support the position. math actually matters to the american people. >> you were doing so well until those last two points. james, you think i'm nuts? do you think there is not going to be a deal? >> because in all seriousness. after today's labor union meeting. so far i have not heard the labor union meeting. i haven't heard that. you go back to the president's friday statement and it was the campai campaign speech but as you suggest he said more tax revenues, but unfortunately, treasury secretary tim geithner said at the ceo council today you have to raise rates. >> he didn't get the memo. he is a busy guy and a good man. but he did not get the memo to which karen referred to earlier. one more point. james, let me ask
that everybody understood was a big difference between myself and mr. romney it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate, and the majority of voters agreed with me. by the way, more voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me. we've got a clear majority of the american people who recognize if we're going to be serious about deficit reduction, we've got to do it in a balanced way. the only question now is are we going to hold the middle class hostage medical record to go ahead and let that happen? or can we all step back and say here's something we agree on, we don't want middle class taxes to go up. let's go ahead and lock that in. that will be good for the economy. it will be good for consumers. it will be good for businesses. it takes the edge off the fiscal cliff, and let's also then commit ourselves to the broader package of deficit reduction that includes entit
. i forgot wednesday. so -- i think everybody needs to catch their breath. i'm sure governor romney is spending some time with his family. and my hope is before the even of the year we have a chance to talk. there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. and to give one example, i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. and, you know, that skill set of trying to figure out how do we make something work better apply to the federal government. there are a lot of ideas i doesn't think are partisan ideas but are just smart ideas about how can we make the federal government more customer-friendly. how can we make sure that we are consolidating programs that are duplicates. he presents some ideas during the campaign that it agree with. so it would be interesting to talk to him about that. there may be ideas he has with respect to jobs and growth that can help middle class families. i'm not either prejudging what he's interested in doing, nor am i suggesting i have got to specific assignment. but way want to do is get id
. if there was one thing that everybody understood, was a big difference between myself and mr. mitt romney, when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced and responsible approach. part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think that every voter out there and understood that that was an important debate. the majority of voters agreed with me. either way, more voters agreed with me on this. we have a clear program that we are going to be serious about deficit reduction, and we have to do it in a balanced way. the only question is are we going to pull the middle-class hostage in order to go ahead and let that happen? or can we all step back and say, here is something we agree on. we don't want the middle-class taxes to go up. let's go ahead and lock them in. that will be good for the economy. it will be good for consumers. it will be good for businesses. it takes the edge off the fiscal cliff. let's also then commit ourselves to the broader package of deficit reduction. that includes entitlement changes and it includes potential t
. it forced that crowd to applaud mitt romney. that's part of the process. you have to knit everybody back together. we're going to stay on process and specifically on the process of how we got here, in other words, through voting. how do we keep voter suppression and jerry man derg on the agenda even after the win. ♪ >>> as we look ahead to the beginning of a continuing administration for president barack obama, we have a reminder of why a president's legacy looms so much larger than a four or eight-year term. yesterday the supreme court announced that the voting rights act and specifically section 5 of the act is in its cross hairs. section 5 required mostly southern states with the history of disenfranchised voters to get federal preclearance before they can make any changes in their voting laws. that's anything from redrawing congressional districts to moving polling locations. this year's election section 5 was the shield that the justice department used to defend democracy against voter suppression in southern states that tried to implement new laws. now it's up for discussion. so
. >> jennifer: let's just jump to the election because everybody has been talking about this today. leading up to the election, fox news has been pushing either romney was going to win and they were still debating the results. turns oh out the president wins the popular vote, not to mention the electoral landslide. he won the popular vote, and do you think that they realized that they're actually living in a fact-free bubble? they're crafting this tale and they actually buy into it? >> well, that's what has sparked this backlash. a lot of viewers, not just of fox news but rush limbaugh listeners, people who troll the right wing internet all the time, they were in this bubble. they were--they were voluntarilying in this right wing bubble. romney is going to win. you can't trust the polls. they're winning. the $64,000 question what were all of these people going to do on the election night when obama won? now we have seen the fallout. now there is around within the conservative movement directed at fox news saying you sold us a bill of goods and this is what sort of self-imposed ignorance looks
. so really he lost. >> listen, man, it was a good race. mitt romney, god bless him. he is a good dude, but it wasn't his time. here are the real winners of they lexes, fox news. fox news. everybody looks sad. it is like, he just breathed life into this building. you make the most money in these four years than anybody. you should have thrown a party when he won. what are you nuts? >> i remember when i worked for the american spectator during the regan years and it was at like 25,000 circulation. during clinton it was 250,000. so opposition always benefits. but you never that because you have people who are unhappy who may say i'm tired of the political process. i don't know. >> that doesn't count because that magazine sucked. >> that was unnecessary. >> he is mean. >> remember rush limbaugh said the best thing happening to him was clinton getting elected it sky rocketed him to fame. >> back then there was something to get mad at. you cheered me up a wee bit. >> it is amazing seeing you two together given he doesn't like black people. >> it is the bloody wogs i have a problem with. >>
thought you and i would go nuts and go chris matthews on everybody. >> i -- i am -- i was in despair. i am sad that america will never have the benefit of mitt romney. but there is always hope in america. but we will keep fighting. >> sean: i couldn't say it any better. next, bob woodward on how the liberal media put all of its resources on re-electing obama. what happened to holding politicians accountable? what does the loss mean for republicans? we will check in with our panel, coming up later tonight on the state of the this bible changed the world. i'm kirk cameron. four hundred years ago our forefathers risked their lives to bring this bible to the shores of america. because it contained the principals for economic liberty, political liberty and religious freedom. the 1599 geneva bible. it was the first complete english translation, complete with chapters, numbered verses and 300,000 utterly unique study notes. it actually came out before the king james version and because the government didn't authorize it, it was outlawed. but it was a bible by the people, for the people, the book
a republican idea. >> so the president bought into an idea he had ran against. now this time everybody on the democrat side, the progressive side, said you can't go this romney direction, keep the lower rights but get rid of this some big fat deductions. now the president is being given an opening by boehner saying there is a way we can compromise. keep that 35% for the top rate but take away all the fat cat deductions. there may not be enough money there. people in that institute -- >> the tax policy center. >> is thereto enough opportunity for that kind of direction, take away a lot of deductions for state and local for example taxation which you have to pay anyway. you can have your formal 35% but you're going to pay a lot more taxes. >> i think at the end of the day, right now the white house is going to stand by, we want the top rate to go back to 39.6%. that's their opening position. we want it to start with people at 250 and above. they're going to stand by that now. going to negotiations the principle they need to protect is the wealthiest pay more. americans don't care exactly
-deportation for undocumented immigrants. they would leave this country, go home, get in line with everybody else. >> that's correct. >> reporter: there were his comments about the 47%. but there were also turning points. his wife's appeal. >> i love you women! >> reporter: and romney's biggest moment, the first debate. >> you've been president four years. you've been president four years. you'd said you'd cut the deficit in half, it's now four years later. >> reporter: and there was self-devry case self-d rry self too. >> it's nice to finally wear what ann and i wear around the house. >> reporter: in the final days, a candid answer from ann, should the race not go their way. >> he will not run again. nor will i. >> reporter: living with ms, ann enduring the rigors of two presidential campaigns. last night, her husband promising a prayer for the president. >> ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. thank you and god bless america. >> reporter: and so the big question tonight, what's next for the governor? he has said in the last 24 hours, he hasn't much thought about t
. they have to get around that. maybe they will raise the bar. how you define wealthy. i think everybody understands that there is an outline for the framework to do tax reform. mitt romney said cap deductions, gave them an idea. said let's do this. they have to figure out a way to get around this. my big question, what role does paul ryan play in all of this. he's pretty far out there a national figure, said no new taxes. and john boehner is going to have to try to lead some compromises in his own caucus, and he's got now a new national leader. >> do you see compromise as possible? because of the fiscal cliff. >> here is the thing. in the olden days when i covered the congress, i used to say, they will end up doing the right thing. i no longer think that. i now believe that they could all retreat into their corners. the only thing that gives me hope is that it's in their own ultimate self-interest to get something done. >> it's in everyone's self interest. david, as you survey the landscape of the incoming congress, any likelihood that members will be able to come together, work with th
ameritrade. >>> if there was one thing that everybody understood was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced responsible approach, and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate, and the majority of voters agreed with me. by the way, more voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me. so we've got a clear majority of the american people who recognize if we're going to be serious about deficit reduction, we've got to do it in a balanced way. >> the president speaking yesterday at the white house. welcome back to "morning joe." 6:48 in the morning as the sun comes up there in washington. steve is back with us now with his charts to explain that fiscal cliff and what might happen if we actually do end up going off it. a combination of tax increases and deep spending cuts. why don't you walk us through it. >> it's a little bit of the perfect storm, as you said. a bunch of stuff happens at
. to see their take on the big election tuesday. and answering the big question everybody's asking, at dinner last night, carol asked me what's mitt romney going to do next? well, "saturday night live" had mitt romney just wondering about that himself out on the balcony of his home gazing at the stars as one by one his five sons cam came out to ask dad what he's up to next. here he is with son matt. >> hello matt. >> mother sent me to come get you, father. paul ryan is doing beat the strength in the drawing room. >> i would like to see him carry wisconsin. i'm sorry. that was uncalled-for. i'm sorry. >> have you been drinking? you smell like a dairy. >> what do you say you share a drink with your old man. >> father, i'm only 38. >> bill: yeah. mitt romney had a -- he was drinking in fact. he was drinking. he was drinking milk. he was drinking milk from a carton of milk. >> oh, that mormon. >> bill: yeah, we've always suspected he had a drinking problem. so all right. so coming up this hour, joe cirincione
. let's start at the national level. everybody has had their shot at interpreting what went on. what do you think the presidential election told us? >> for better or worse, romney did symbolize the well-born, the privileged. i could have sold him as a latter day tom duehy who looked like he had a lot going for him, but at the end of the day harry truman had the common man, had the common touch, and i think barack obama was closer to the center of american political thinking than the republicans. >> and that goes along with some of the polling that we've seen where mitt romney and president obama were about even and sometimes mitt romney led when you asked who has the best plan for the economy, but when you said who best understands people like you, president obama was always sort of, you know, out ran, out paced mitt romney for that. the question is when you look four years from now, when you don't have a president obama on the ticket, is this a certain coalition for democrats? >> i think so. if you look at the majorities of hispanic voters, african-american voters, asian voters, younge
solve together. >> romney also spoke of bipartisan cooperation promising pat brady had of the illinois gop to also eco the same sentiment. we need a government we can afford and get a job creation going i think everybody needs to come together and do that and it should be serious policy discussion we should put politics aside for a while. >> republicans had scheduled a morning after victory party breakfast some of those who showed up also talked about healing and working together. we might be able to see some interesting things happen in washington d.c. between republicans and democrats to make that happen and i'm hoping in illinois we benefit as well. i think there has to be a move to the middle if you will how that gets done, your constituencies need to demand that appeared >> maybe this time healing can become a reality. >> i believe we can seize the future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggest, we are not as cynical as the pundits believe, we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions more than a collection of red states in blue states, we are
as if romney told supporters that obama won because he gave a chicken in every potato everybody. >> exactly. he's now back to -- this was essentially the sentiment at the heart of that secretly recorded video that came out during the campaign where he talked about the 47%, the people dependent on the government they would vote for the president because he would hand things out. romney spent several weeks trying to walk back from that statement. now he seems to be embracing it again, the idea these voters are so easily manipulated the president merely needed to dangle a thing or two in front of them and they would rush him to at the polls. the reason you would embrace this argument if you're in the romney camp is the alternative argument is that they totally misread the electorate is a more painful one to embrace. >> one question that comes out of this is this notion that nancy cordes raised, is the president clearly desirous of reaching out with good intentions to republicans, because the susan rice deal suggests that he's ready to fight. >> on that one he is because he's irritated. sort of at
home and apply for legal residency in the united states, get in line with everybody else. >> juan gonzalez, your response about the significance of this and these approaches when it came to the election? >> he moniker that was attached to romney, much as the 47% remark, was the one in the general population that stuck with him and outraged folks. this idea that people would elect to self deport themselves was so absurd and was so clear that romney felt she kept hedging, even during the general election, to say he would move toward a humane immigration policy in the country. i think that was a critical -- it is not just a question of the undocumented, but every latino knows or does some in their family or someone close to them who is facing the threat of possible deportation because they are undocumented in this country. this is really an issue that doesn't just affect the immigrants, but the entire latino, more than 50 million latinos in the united states today. i think that really was the key issue. for instance, the latino support for obama increased from 67% in 2008, went to 71
. they're not saying tax cuts but additional he revenues. i think that romney's idea is resonates and being knocked around. the one thing that romney did was have a moving target on it. i don't remember it being percentages, but dollar amounts. let's say everybody got 25,000 let's say everybody got 17,000. so i think that's out there as a real viable option. >> it would be impressive considering that -- >> tamron -- >> it could be a concession. it would be huge. kelly. >> one of the things that's attractive about that is if you specifically isolate the mortgage deduction or charitable deductions, then all the people associated with that the industry of housing, all of those charities have such a vested interest to try to fight that. if you make it a bucket you take some of the sting out. it still may result in people giving charitilyably and buying homes. one of the issues about taking away deductions that is so critical to do it is not wanting to draw out all of the lobbies to fight those things and render them useless. >> every good idea has someone on the

, if there was one thing that everybody understood, was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate. and the majority of voters agreed with me. by the way, more voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me. we've got a clear majority of the american people who recognize if we're going to be serious about deficit reduction, we have to do it in a balanced way. the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle class hostage in order to go ahead and let that happen? or can we all step back and say here's something we agree on, we don't want middle class taxes to go up. let's go ahead and lock that in. that will be good for the economy. it will be good for consumers. it will be good for businesses. it takes the edge off the fiscal cliff. and let's also then commit ourselves to the broader package of deficit reduction that in
romney. that's why he picked sarah palin. he doesn't like the president. and the way to get to him is to make sure that everybody thinks he's a bad guy. not stupid, not wrong, not too liberal, he's evil. he's bad. he's the kind of guy that would serve up a good serving american ambassador like chris stevens in order for a pr stunt or some other unclear motive, but he wants to make the guy look like a bad guy. what do you think is going on here? that's what i think. >> yeah. i think you're right basically. republicans seem to be really bad losers. mitt romney is apparently a bad loser. john mccain as you said earlier, i don't think he's ever gotten over 2008. so he's looking for any opportunity he has to stick a thumb in barack obama's eye. but jonathan is completely right. he picked the wrong person here. susan rice had nothing to do with benghazi. but, look, the republicans are facing an electoral wipeout in the last election. they still want to oppose barack obama any way they can, but what's their excuse? because the american people have now chosen barack obama over the republic
in the country gets extended tax relief until very high income earners. people like mitt romney get a bonus tax break. i don't think that's sustainable to tell the american people that they are holding out for bonus tax breaks for folks at the top at the expense of everybody else. that's not a sustainable position. i hope they come to that conclusion before january. after january, i think it would be impossible for them to maintain that position and can hold up tax relief to 98% of the american people. tax relief for 100% of the american people on their first $250,000 of income. >> congressman, good to have you on the program. thank you. >>> let me bring our guests back in. totally different topic, but it's been an emotional time. now that the election has wrapped up, you could really see how emotional in the video that the obama campaign released last night. the president talking to young volunteers in chicago the day after he won. here's a clip of it. >> even before last night's results, i felt that the work i had done in running for office had come full circle. because what you guys have don
for everybody at least those making over $250,000 a year. romney and obama different -- american people said going to exit polls we agree with obama. >> that's what this election was about. romney was saying there was a stark choice between higher taxes and growth or whatever he would say. and it was litigated on the tax issue and on the tax issue obama won the argument. moving into the fiscal cliff situation, he has a strong hand. the public is with him. >> bill: right. 49% say states should legally recognize same-sex marriages. >> of course, you saw big wins in maryland, defeated in minnesota. so moving forward -- maine -- so moving forward. that's the first time that you saw -- put it to a popular vote. those issues go forward. the numbers nationally are still divided but again i think a pivotal moment and those numbers again with the demographics will only grow and grow and grow. >> bill: on immigration reform, which i found interesting, of course, the difference is president obama had a comprehensive immigration reform
are almost evenly he split representing a divided electorate, and the man tasked with bringing everybody together har harry reid is not interested in compromise. he said it's better to dance than fight, but he sung a different tune when candidate romney wanted to reach across the aisle on his claim that they would work with him on his agenda. reid said romney's fantasy that senate democrats will work with him to pass in very conservative agenda is laughable. if not the majority leader, who will emerge as a power player to help tackle the most pressing issues? fiscal cliff, anyone? sorry, steve. i know you hate that phrase. in the guest spot today helping us identify senators to depoll larize our senate is jimmy williams who worked with dick durb durbin. >> jimmy -- >> that's not easy. >> jimmy, so you heard harry reid's obstructionist mantra before the election. should we expect a softer harry reid to emerge after the election? >> harry reid was a boxer in college, so i think that tells you -- he was a capitol hill policeman before he was a united states senator and the majority leader.
to notice and i'll also point out that paul ryan is the republican in the romney campaign who said look, let's go campaign among black voters, even though they're not voting for us, because if we're the republican party of opportunity for everybody, that's where we ought to be among the part of the economy that needs help the most. >> david, i want to ask you about something else the congressman said today. abc asked him whether or not the president had a mandate. here's what he had to say. >> the president wins 300 some electoral votes, every battleground state with the exception of north carolina. does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so, because they also re-elected the house republicans, so whether people intended or not, we've got divided government. >> you don't think it's a mandate here? >> i don't, because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. >> david, do you buy that? democrats gain in both the house and the senate. the president won the popular vote, well over 300 electoral votes and by big majorities, they told exit poll
-preservation they have got to get some kind of a grand bargain done. and everybody knows, wolf, everybody knows that it includes tax reform. mitt romney himself proposed a version of tax reform where you cap deductions for example. that's something that will automatically be on the table. so they just have to get over this huge issue of the tax cuts and then they can get to the larger macro issues of how do you avoid the fiscal cliff and start dealing with entitlements. >> that would require if you deal with the increased revenues through tax reform, it would require the president blinking on the increase in the tax rate for the wealthiest americans. >> and that's why i'm saying perhaps there's a way to redefine wealthy. maybe it's not $250,000. maybe it's $1 million. maybe it's $2 million. who knows. you know, i have to believe when you're staring at thecliff, to has got to beomeay for avo it causey kw the repercussions are not just in this country, they're global. they've got to figure it out. >> in our exit polls we asked what is your opinion of the obama administration. 49% said they were e
. it was not a warmly-received suggestion. [laughter] it has occurred to me that if mitt romney had made that his slogan -- [laughter] for his campaign this year instead of the rather bland believe in america, he would be on his way to a massive landslide. everybody could get onboard with that. [laughter] young, by the way, used to say that he only swore when he was in the pulpit which wasn't true. he also swore at other times. i like to say that i only swear when i quote brigham young, which pretty much is true. [laughter] back to, back to the story. i am the head, young told the other apostles, you are the belly. his message was simple: get in line or get out of the way. those were the only two options. the apostles got in line. and young became the even more unquestioned leader of his church. my other story is from four years later, the her of 1851 -- the summer of 1851 in salt lake city. and it's a rare example of a church member willing to question young's authority. president millard fillmore had recently appointed brigham young the first territory of the newly-created utah territory, first govern
. if the nation wants obamacare for everybody to paying for everybody's hells insurance it becomes pretty difficult, doesn't it. maybe that is what liberals wanted. >> it's based on romney care, but what obamacare does it gets rid of free riders. >> heather: let me jump in. alan we're talking about health implications. you jumped. there are health implications that have been proven from smoking marijuana. >> you are making the presumption because of this law, more people will be unhealthy and more people won't be able to be well -- let me finish -- the government isn't saying pleasing smoke marijuana. it doesn't make sense to have a law that costs society a lot more in terms of energy and money to have a law that makes it ridiculous -- >> but it is linked to cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer risk of leukemia in offspring of women that smoke it during pregnancy. >> if the government tells you everything that caused any disease or something you couldn't have we wouldn't be able to have anything. it's not the role of government to tell us what to put in our bodies as adults. >> thank
rhetoric do you think one side, does obama seem more likely than romney to solve the problems. >> guest: the coverage has nothing to do with what is going on at all. first of all the plan eliminates all taxes on lap capital and everybody that has 12 and a half million dollars of wealth. and people -- that this is the system that says let's deal for the rich live tax and we are going to further the policy shifting things down and i believe there would lead to wealth and the situation where the entrepreneurial spirit is killed because it's the newcomer but grew up like i did that makes the success of himself and makes the economy grow and we would become like 18th-century france and your economics were determined by who you picked up as your parents, your gender and birth order. obama is actually the most business friendly president in the american history and i realize people were listening to this saying what? 100%. not under obama. 30% bonus for a single year. in the current economic environment it may be to encourage more capital investment. i think we need to discuss whether we want
of criticism from not one, but two former presidential rivals. >> good afternoon, everybody. >> reporter: at his first post election press conference, president obama reiterated his pledge to sit down with mitt romney, even offering him praise. >> there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. >> reporter: but while the president was paying him compliments, mitt romney was telling donors on a conference call a different story. romney said he was sorry we didn't win and he blamed his defeat on gifts the president had given to his most loyal voters, including african-americans, young voters, and hispanics. mr. romney said the president followed the old play book and with regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift, adding free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. as for the hispanic voters, romney said free health care was a big plus. another former opponent of the president, john mccain along with lindsey graham made it clear they would not support susan ric
was mitt romney's message? dev a message? >> yeah. >> what was it? >> mitt romney's message is, i am going to take away medicare from everybody under 55. i'm going to cut medicaid for everybody by about one-third. and i'm going to do that in order to finance a giant tax cut for me and my friends. and the reason i'm doing that is because half the country contribute nothing to our national endeavor. that's his message. >> well, you know, if you put it that way, david gregory, maybe it's not as unifying a message as the republican party once thought. actually, there are a lot of people that are going to be wringing their hands and talking about why the republican party lost. a lot of talk about demographics. but i boil it down to this. they can't figure out how to make their message relevant to an 18-year-old latino voter, but they can figure out a way to make it relevant to a 65-year-old white guy in the south. i mean, if you believe in conservatism, you believe, like i believe and i'm sure like david believes, that it's relevant to all americans. >> i disagree with david a little bit in thi
%. the president is saying let's have a balanced approach and then everybody do their fair share. that was put before the public. it was in virtually every speech the president gave. it was opposed by mitt romney. the president won the re- election, and the republicans should listen to what the public has said. they seem fixed on this notion, do not touch rates, do something else, that is often vague. mitt romney said pick a number. you cannot do tax reform that way. basically, we need to avoid the fiscal cliff, we need to make sure middle income taxpayers continue to receive the tax rates they have paid, while upper income tax rates, those should be allowed to expire. host: something else on the table, the expiration of the payroll tax holiday. should that be extended? is it realistic? guest: it would depend on the results of the reports next month. if they are like this last month and it shows considerable job growth, i think the payroll tax provision will expire. if there is a change, we will have to take a look at it. we need to have a balanced approach, look at the facts, see what is goin
of mitt romney and most republican candidates. so on an issue where two-thirds of the electorate thinks you are wrong, the anti-abortion movement says the secret is that you should campaign more on what everybody thinks you're wrong about. the numbers get even worse for republicans among latinos. yes, on this issue specifically. where less than a third of latino voters say they agree with the dominant republican position on this issue. after the republicans won a record number of state legislature states in 2010 and a bunch of governorships too, republicans in those states, since the 2010 election, have just been focused on abortion, like never before. they enacted a record number of new anti-abortion laws, more than at any time since roe versus wade became the law of the land. the same thing happened at the federal level, as soon as republicans took control of the house, after the 2010 mid-term elections. hr-3, as in the house republican's third bill overall, their bill was an anti-abortion bill. they have also tried to ban abortion after a certain time limit in washington, d.c. they'v
had three or four days when everybody was obsessed with the super storm sandy. it's not necessarily that chris christie helped the president so much but the conversation changed from what seemed to be some momentum going for romney and it just halted. it just stopped completely while the country was focused in, understandably, on what was going on in new jersey and statin island and long island and elsewhere. >> right. all right. wolf, thank you for your insight, as always. so appreciated. great work on the election. i know you were probably very tired. you deserve lots of days off. >>> to our viewers, don't forget that wolf -- he doesn't take a break. he's amazing. he's going to be back on 4:00 eastern. one of the things he will probably talk about as well is the effect of the hispanic vote. it was a big factor in the republicans are going to have to look into that deeply. that's in "the situation room" of course here on cnn. ♪ ♪ ♪ hi dad. many years from now, when the subaru is theirs... hey. you missed a spot. ...i'll look back on this day and laugh. love. it's what makes a
everybody take their deductions at a 15% level, which is fairer of course, or what romney was talking about in the last few weeks. you have a cap on how much you can take deductions. the problem with all of that is as tax policy center and other policy centers have shown, that hits the middle class and the upper middle class more than it does the rich. figuring out how you can do this and yet shift the burdens were in effect have to be, if you are born to make it saleable and workable, is no easy task. >> the last couple of questions raised really a larger issue about the nature of the crisis of the deficit and debt stabilization over time. how big a problem it is? should it be the overwhelmingly number one priority for a long period of time to come? i am one of these people who believe what an old friend of ours, bob carr, premier of new south wales, and now the minister of foreign affairs said, don't worry about america, there is nothing wrong with united states that one of reasonable budget deal cannot solve. it is worth keeping in mind. we are probably on the road to economic recovery.
have a ton of ammunition and they are going to try and use these remarks to hurt everybody they can. if i was put in that position, i would be thinking about what is in the best interest of the party, what is in the best interest of, you know, mitt romney, in this case? what is in the best interest of the people of missouri? are they going to hear a campaign about issues or is this going to be a distraction in the campaign? you are not even considering that? >> caller: no, no. those are all legitimate point, sean. i am trained as an engineer. you look at both sides of the equation. and you say, what are the pros and the cons. >> sean: i don't want to go after him personally. if you can't answer that question, you don't belong in that race. >> what about the party scploilt doing what is in the best interest of the party. if you are not able to be up to the task and answer a simple question, without ruining your personal reputation and jeopardizing the interest of the party, which are significant in the case of a seat like that, shouldn't you have stepped aside? >> sean: sthoos what
of this campaign. i mean, this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. if there was one thing that everybody understood was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced responsible approach, in part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate, and the majority of voters agreed with me. by the way, more voters agreed with me on this issue and voted for me. so we've got a clear majority of the american people who recognize that if we're going to be serious about deficit reduction, we've got to do in a balanced way. the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle-class hostage in order to go ahead and let that happen? or can we all step back and said, here's something we agree on, we don't want middle-class taxes to go up, let's go ahead and lock it in. that will be good for the economy. it will be good for consumers. it would be good for businesses. it takes the edge off the fiscal cliff, and let's also bee
and a matter of tone. the way to grow this for everybody has to have the policies that were enunciated in the plan that mitt romney laid out. we were just not successful getting it to that level. >> do you think that the comments by the senator the comments by todd akin and richard murdoch -- do they carry through to an international level in the polling for the republicans probably? >> yes. [laughter] >> again, hard to measure. but the gender gap that we have on our site, which, by the way, it is not something new this year. the numbers are not in yet. but it probably will be comparable to 2008. i'm not saying it's going. but it is a challenge we face as republicans. and i think those comments exacerbated things. >> in previous cycles, a comment by a senator like that would not have echoed through that remark that's true. whatever stupid thing i say today can have an impact on what happens. every gathering and fundraiser, everything that we saw everything is subject to being repeated on the web. that is something that the candidates need to be aware of. frankly, in 2014, republicans h
's sort of like the utah of the salt lake city editorial. which mitt romney are we going to see? and i think that's what concerned maybe a lot of independents. everybody had their base and everybody played to their base. >> which obama are we going to see? the one that took office in 2008 and immediately went far left? the one that was in the campaign? the one in between? >> i think it's going to depend on -- this is going to be interesting. the question is what do we do between now and december 31st? that's what everyone is afraid of, what they call that fiscal cliff, that i hope that they'll explain it. i tried to explain it on my show this week. what is it, what does it mean, and what kind of impact -- someone is suggesting if we g off that fiscal cliff, then we're talking about the loss of two million jobs, as it was explained this week. two million jobs and we'll be right back into a recession. >> we've got to take a break. we've got to pick it up with much more ahead. >>> here are some of the stories we're following this morning. it's veterans day, and here in d.c., there are ple
knows the opportunities that are there. he wants everybody to be able to take advantage of the opportunities. he cares about those people. mitt romney cares about those who, like himself, have been hugely successful. all they want is more, more, more for them and they don't care about other people who are getting started. it sums it up why president obama got 60% of the young vote. he deserves it. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>"if you ever raise taxes on the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! >>oh really? >>tax cuts don't create jobs. the golden years as the conservatives call them, we had the highest tax rates, and the highest amount of growth, and the highest amount of jobs. those are facts. >>"if you ever raise taxes on the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! let's hear yours. politically direct means no b.s. just telling you what's going on in politics today. >>at the only on-line forum with a direct line to bill press. >>it's something i've been waiting for a long time. >>join the debat
these candidates. everybody looks great on paper. but it's only the man -- theater roosevelt talks about the man in the arena. and the man in the arena was mitt romney and he gave it his all. we can look back and say we should have done this or that but to suggest this could have easily been won if when had somebody else, i don't buy that. but you have to respond. when your other side says our strategy is to make the republican candidate unacceptable even to the points of knowing we are going to suppress the vote. we had a campaign strategy deliberately designed to so turn off people even if they disagreed with barack obama they could not bring themselves to vote for the other guy. megyn: fight back earlier. >> also we have a problem with latinos. this is the only group he got more votes from this time around than last time around. we need to do more with young people and the changing diversity of americans. president obama lost strengths among women. megyn: how do you recruit groups like that. >> you make certain you have people who represent those communities in leadership of your party. here
. the way to grow this economy and create more jobs an opportunity for everybody is to have policies enunsy eighted in five-point plan mitt romney laid out and we were not successful getting it to that level. >> do you think the comments by the senator, senatorial candidates, todd akin and richard mourdock mattered? did they carry through in national level in polling for republicans broadly? >> yes. again, hard to measure but obviously the gender gap that we have on our side, which by the way persists. it is not something new this year. final numbers i think are not in yet but will probably be comparable to 2008. i'm not saying it is growing but it is a challenge we face as republicans. i think those comments exacerbated that gender gap. >> that's extraordinary when you think about it, in previous cycles before the persistent 24/7 media a comment by a senator would not have echoed through the national -- >> so whatever stupid things you say today can actually have an impact on what happens, every gathering, every fund-raiser as we saw, you know, everything is now subject to being repeated o
. here is jacki schechner. >> good morning, everybody. as of this hour florida is still counting votes from tuesday's election. and the president has won mitt romney has conceded the nation is moving forward. so what is the problem? usa today called it a combination of poor management lack of capacity and systemic dysfunction. the election supervisors are elected officials, so that's an issue, also miami dade management blames the ten-page complicated ballot for causing people to take as much as 40 minutes to fill it out. as many laws that were tried to pass this year to disenfranchise democratic voters it wasn't the legislation, but simply the long lines that held people up. that's mostly do to logistics beyond the law. former congress woman gabby giffords and her husband may be in court today facing the man who shot giffords killed six people as we faces sentencing. the struck a plea deal back in august, that gives him life in prison and spares the victims a long emotional trial. kelly will read a statement on behalf of the two of them, but the ap says now it i
